Wayne and I are fortunate because we didn’t lose power other than for a brief minute in the middle of the night. Over 25,000 people in our county are without power right now. The storm started yesterday morning with snow, then rain, then snow, more heavy rain before it turned over to very heavy snow. We think we got maybe eight or more inches in our yard.
He got started with the snowblower around 5:30 a.m. when it was still dark.
After a blustery night the air was still and the scenery spectacular.
Wayne cleared the driveway and brushed our cars off. He’s the best.
I was outside in my pajamas and storm overcoat (it’s an L.L.Bean wool duffle coat I bought in the late 1990s that looks brand new but it’s too big for me now so I just wear it for shoveling and such) taking pictures and keeping Wayne company. Not to worry, he gets coffee in bed every morning, plus I spent two hours shoveling last storm!
Our home looks cozy and cottage-like.
The neighbors were also up clearing their driveways. The sounds of shovels, snowblowers and plows are a constant after a storm like this.
Getting lighter out.
He gets used to it.
The changing light changes everything around it.
Roof raking is an ongoing chore for Wayne. We don’t want ice dams!
Seems like it could be comfy despite the cold.
After we moved our cars Wayne finished clearing the driveway from the snow that came off of them.
See what I mean about the light changing things?
I love it!
